Canelo, the 28-year-old native of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, is without a doubt boxing's biggest star. After his historic win against Gennady "GGG" Golovkin in their highly anticipated rematch in September, Canelo captured the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Titles to established himself as the very best fighter in the division. Canelo will look to capture a world title in a third division against Fielding.
Fielding is a 31-year-old native of Liverpool, England who climbed the 168-pound rankings by fighting the toughest fighters in his native country. Fielding has only suffered one loss in his career, against who would eventually be a world champion in Callum Smith. Since then, he has scored six victories in a row, including his career-best win against Tyron Zeuge to capture the WBA Super Middleweight World Title in July. Fielding will defend his title in what will be his United States debut.
